Cue the Elgar, lads


I woke up this morning to the best news that I have heard since The Trumpinator became the Republican candidate for President:
The English shires and Labour's northern heartlands led Britain out of the European Union in a victory for middle England. 
Despite Britain's biggest cities backing a Remain vote at yesterday's historic referendum, the country overall headed for the Brexit door. 
The results caused immediate turmoil in the markets as the pound collapsed by more than 10 per cent in the hours after the polls closed and the FTSE-100 braced for heavy losses. 
Nigel Farage - who earlier appeared to concede defeat - made a jubilant victory speech at around 4am declaring it was a 'victory for ordinary people'. 
Tory constituencies across the south and midlands voted for Brexit in huge numbers. 
Places such as Wellingborough, West Somerset and Chesterfield all voted for leave by more 60 per cent. 
The referendum map was painted blue for Out across vast swathes of England - despite London and Scotland being bright yellow. 
Mr Farage told a jubilant Leave.EU rally in central London: 'Dare to dream that the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom. 
'This, if the predictions now are right, this will be a victory for real people, a victory for ordinary people, a victory for decent people. 
'We have fought against the multinationals, we have fought against the big merchant banks, we have fought against big politics, we have fought against lies, corruption and deceit. 
'And today honesty, decency and belief in nation, I think now is going to win. 
'And we will have done it without having to fight, without a single bullet being fired, we'd have done it by damned hard work on the ground.' 
Mr Farage praised Ukip donor Arron Banks along with Labour and Tory MPs and those of 'no party' who have taken part in the Leave campaign.
G. K. Chesterton wrote a classic poem a long time back called "The Secret People", which might just as well have been written about the EU and its effects on national sovereignty:
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs. 
We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,
Yet is there no man speaketh as we speak in the street.
It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,
Our wrath come after Russia's wrath and our wrath be the worst.
It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest
God's scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.
But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.
Smile at us, pay us, pass us. But do not quite forget.
Well, I suspect that Mr. Chesterton would be delighted to see what the people of England actually said when they were given the chance to speak. And they told their new unhappy lords, in no uncertain terms, "Get The Phuck OUT".

My friends, June 23rd was a great day for us. Yesterday, the people of England and Wales made their ancestors proud by voting clearly in favour of independence. The ancient rights that the English fought and bled and died for through the centuries might, just maybe, once again be restored to their rightful place.

The reaction of the elites has been to wet their collective pants. I'm watching the editor of the Financial Times on ABCNNBCBS- they're all basically the same to me, lefty and stupid to the core- saying that Britain is now in the grips of a constitutional crisis, and that investors will now have no certainty whatsoever for the foreseeable future.

While he isn't wrong, these people simply do not understand how resilient people and nations really are. Those of us who are in favour of national sovereignty, self-determination, and the rights of a free people to rule themselves, are not motivated by fear or greed or hatred. We are motivated by love of God, of country, of our people. We believe in the fundamental goodness and decency of those like us, and we would see the greatness of Western, Christian civilisation restored.

We have faith in each other, and that faith will see us through the darkness that is to come.

The globalist elites see none of these things, because they cannot. They are willfully blind to the realities of the human condition, by definition; they follow an ideology that says that there is no difference between a white man from a Christian culture, a black man from a pagan African culture, or a brown man from a pagan Hindu culture. They see us all as interchangeable pieces in their Great Game.

And now that a small, but clear, majority of the British people has told them in no uncertain terms just how wrong they are, they simply don't know how to react.

But we do.

Brothers, this is only the beginning. Nationalist movements are surging throughout Europe, and soon we will see referendums taking place across the continent. I dare to hope that one day our children will grow up to be proudly English, Welsh, German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and so on- rather than blandly "European". That is right, and just, and natural. That is what the Lord intended for us, and this unholy abomination of the EUSSR will one day be consigned to the ash-heap of history along with its spiritual predecessors.

However, we cannot give in to euphoria and overconfidence. We just won a major battle in a very long and difficult war. Make no mistake, the European elites will do everything they can to repress and destroy the spirit of independence and freedom. It will take years to break away from the tenacious tentacles of the vampire-squid that is the EU. The bewildering web of treaties, regulations, agencies, and laws that the EU has imposed upon the British people will take time to dismantle, and the closeness of the Brexit vote indicates that ditching all of that nonsense will take many bruising, bloody, and painful political battles.

We will likely lose one step for every one that we win.

And yet, history is on our side. Culture is on our side. The facts of human nature are on our side. The Lord Himself is on our side- and as far as I'm concerned, that is all the endorsement that anyone will ever need.

So celebrate today, my friends. Crack open a barrel of proper English ale- the kind that people drink warm, with bits of soil floating on top- and get properly hammered. It's that kind of day. The British people got a once-in-a-generation chance to vote to secure their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honour. They managed to secure their independence without a shot fired- and no, the murder of MP Jo Cox does not count. This is rather more than the South can say; the United Kingdom did not have to go through their own version of the War Between the States to secure their ancient rights, and for that, we should be profoundly grateful.

And let "Rule, Britannia" be heard from every corner of the British Isles. Let the Flag fly high. Let the whole world know that the British people have taken their first step toward restoring their ancient freedoms- and that their ancestors are looking down upon them and smiling.

  1. I will be damned. There I was thinking that the old country was gutless.

    Makes me proud to be a mixture of English and Welsh.

  2. I posted this to FB and Baen's Bar, but you may like it as well:

    It hit me the other day, something that was so obvious and yet I'd not actually grasped the core of the thing. For a variety of reasons and instincts, many of them worthy if not adequate, there is a large block of folks who want a world government.

    Socialism having failed to create a world government, and having failed miserably, attempted world conquest having failed, and miserably, the never-sufficiently-to-be-damned UN having failed, what was left? And forget Gramsci’s long march through the institutions; that can destroy but not build.

    What is left is to create a denationalized world ruling class and support class, and world government will follow. I don’t think it’s a plot, actually, people are notoriously incompetent plotters, and certainly incompetent at this scale of plotting. Rather, it’s a consensus (which I think I already defined for you but, if not, a consensus arises when similar people, from similar backgrounds and educations, see similar problems, issues, and opportunities, similarly, and independently come up with similar solutions and approaches).

    That world governing class just took a little shot to the nuts. I hope it is the first of many, O, many.

    1. Well, this certainly has to hurt those 'tranzies' you talk about.
      I blame star trek for all the stupid geeks among an otherwise intelligent demographic.
      May Gene Roddenberry burn in hell. TOS would have been made without him.

    2. Shot to the nuts with a baseball bat, sir- and here is to hoping that it is, as you say, the first of a very great many.

  3. I have been reading that the leftists in the UK have petitioned for a 2nd referendum. There are over 2 million signatures now and parlement may debate it. If that is so, will the vote of the British public be voided and the politicians have a 2nd referendum whose outcome will be to there liking? If that is the case, will any of these EU countries ever be able to get out of the clutches of this evil bureaucracy?

    1. Yep. Like I said, the opponents of freedom will do everything they can to stop the UK from exercising its rights as a sovereign nation and people. Nothing surprising about that.

      Their perfidy is worse than we thought. That petition is now 3 million signatures strong, and growing- but it has gotten there through blatant fraud and deceit.

      This is not surprising, of course. But it DOES mean that Britain needs to GTFO of the EU as fast as it possibly can, before the turncoats and cowards in the Conservative Party decide to backtrack completely on their promises to their Leave supporters.
